I honestly don't know the smell of camellias, however, I own a bit of Camellia perfume from Hove Parfumeur. It's very reserved and somewhat baby-oil like. The company description: "As dry and delicate-sweet as a fine white wine, this fragrance compliments the quiet, fair and tailored personality."

They offer lovely sampler groupings. The Rue Royale is the other fragrance I recommend putting on one's to-test list.
I look forward to reading what others might come up with. I don't think I've seen this question before.
